Those who are familiar with the Chevy’s interesting plug-in hybrid model weren’t surprised with the recent discontinuation. The small hatchback was characterized by pretty slow sales in the past several years, so the company finally decided to drop it. However, most experts already started to speculate about the 2020 Chevrolet Volt.
The main reason for such speculations lays in the fact the company invested a lot in a new plug-in hybrid and probably doesn’t want to waste all that money. Therefore, this system will probably find a place in some new model, which could easily keep familiar nameplate and come as 2020 Chevrolet Volt.
- Long all-electric range
- Good fuel economy
- Lots of standard equipment
- Probably won’t even come
The company doesn’t want another unsuccessful model in its portfolio. Therefore, the possible 2020 Chevrolet Volt definitely wouldn’t come with a similar layout. Most likely, the new model would come with a new body style and it’s not hard to guess it would definitely be a crossover.
Crossovers are by far the most popular types of cars these days and such layout seems perfect for the new hybrid model. In terms of size, we may presume this would be a quite small vehicle, probably similar to the all-electric Bolt. On the other side, the styling is still a mystery, though we don’t have any doubt it will be adapted to the company’s newest design language.
Considering that the new model is just speculation at the moment, we definitely predict anything particular about the 2020 Chevrolet Volt. At this point, we will stick to those most general details about the new SUV. It should be a quite small crossover, so we count on two rows of seating and a decent level of comfort.
The company will probably to make 2020 Chevrolet Volt competitive with conventional crossovers, so we could see a little bit lower interior quality, in order to cut production costs. On the other side, count on a full amount of tech goodies, including Chevy’s intuitive infotainment system.
2020 Chevrolet Volt Engine
When it comes to the powertrain, the 2020 Chevrolet Volt should continue with a familiar system that is based on a 1.5-liter gasoline engine, which comes with a quite large 18.4-kWh battery. The whole system delivers around 150 horsepower, but the more important thing about it is the fact that you can count on pretty impressive 52 miles of all-electric range. Also, it features a 7.2-kWh charger, which offers a much quicker charging time.
2020 Chevrolet Volt Release Date and Price
At this point, it seems way too early to speculate about 2020 Chevrolet Volt‘s release date and price, since we are still waiting to hear something from the officials.
